Had Mirena for 1 year post partum. Doctor recommended it since I had a c section. Had no previous experience with birth control. It took one year for my period to disappear completely and that’s when it all went bad. I had severe anxiety leading up to a 2-week long panic attack with no sleep, causing high blood pressure and depressing mood swings. Had no idea what was happening. One of my friends suggested hormonal imbalance and that’s when I realized it was the IUD (after some research). I had it removed ASAP and then dealt with mirena crash but symptoms were nothing like before having it removed. 2 months later and I’m still trying to rebalance mood and sleep patterns but I’m so glad I had it removed!! NEVER again.
